Fraternity & Sorority Life at Miami University
About the Five Principles
Each chapter is committed to the Principles of the Greek Community: Scholarship & Learning, Service & Philanthropy, Leadership & Values, Community, and Brotherhood & Sisterhood.
Scholarship & Learning
Each chapter commits itself to the tenet of enhancing scholarship and learning within the chapter. As a result, in Fall 2009 the members of Miami's Greek community demonstrated exceptional scholarship, posting an overall Greek GPA of 3.17 in contrast to the non-Greek overall GPA of 3.06. This is reflective of Greek student leadership not only in the community but also in the classroom.
Service & Philanthropy
One of the most rewarding aspects of fraternity and sorority involvement is the opportunity to impact the lives of those in the community. Last year, Miami Greeks donated countless hours and thousands of dollars to both local and national charities through service projects and philanthropic fundraisers.
Miami's Greek community is dedicated to developing strong, multi-faceted leaders through a variety of leadership opportunities. Fraternity and sorority life provides an outstanding means for the discovery and implementation of each member's unique leadership potential by encouraging individuals to strive for positive change in their organizations and the entire community.
The Greek Community has been thriving for almost 175 years at Miami University. The Greek community offers leadership, social, and service opportunities that you will find hard to match elsewhere. Whether it is a fraternity or sorority sponsored service event, party, philanthropy, athletic event, or speaker, you will be able to grow as an individual through your Greek involvement at Miami University.
Brotherhood & Sisterhood
Within each chapter, there is a close bond of friendship and family. This is one of the foundations of the Greek experience. The unique personalities of fraternity and sorority members provide a diverse and well-rounded Greek Community. The ideal of brotherhood and sisterhood is a cornerstone that each fraternity and sorority is built upon and is reflected in each chapter. The relationships that you form within your chapter exceed that of a friendship.
